The visit gave Fairline’s 280-strong workforce the chance to meet Rick and colleague Ryan Ratcliffe and to see their car, the Bentley Continental GT3.

Russell Currie, managing director of Fairline Yachts, said: “It was great to welcome Rick and Ryan to Oundle.

“Our partnership is a fantastic opportunity for our customers to join the action with exclusive ‘back stage’ access to the team, drivers and first-class hospitality at each of the events. The whole team is backing Rick all the way.”
